The dog whisperer of Pittsburgh

Mr. O trained our puppy that we found on the side of the road recently. He was a good puppy but was just so hyper and wouldn't listen. He used to always chew on things he shouldn't, constantly needed to be on a leash or would run away and chase wild animals, aggressive towards other dogs, and would always jump on people to greet them. Now our puppy knows the word "No" so if he is chewing on something he shouldn't I say "No" once and he knows not to chew on it anymore. He is an off leash dog at home and at friends houses. He runs around outside, knows his boundary and comes to me when I yell "come". He is much less aggressive towards dogs, still isn't perfect but much much better, he is even able to make friends with dogs we meet on a walk. And he jumps on people much less and knows when we say "down" to stop jumping. An added bonus is when I put food in front of him he won't eat it until I say "okay". I am fortunate to be able to bring him to work often and coworkers and customers always comment on how well behaved he is.I am always telling people if they have a dog that needs trained to see Mr. O. He might not be for the idealist or the perfectionist who live in a world where they think dogs should be treated like humans. But if you're a realist that needs a dog to behave with healthy boundaries, Mr. O is your guy. More...

Rated highly for: Quality, ValueMr. O really impressed my family by taking on our rescue puppy for training. Max apparently was abused and an aggressive biter. Last week Max actually participated at the Butler Italian festival and was showed impressive control and improvement. I would highly recommend. More...

My daughter is wheelchair bound and has utilized a service dog since childhood. Mr O took an unsocialized german shepard that we had purchased to get her out of a bad situation and trained her to be my daughters service dog. He did a wonderful job and will be who we use when we need another service dog. He does an excellent job and I highly recommend him to train any service dog! More...

Mr. O’s Dog Training.LucaWe have an ultra friendly 2 ½ year old male Golden Doodle. His one really bad habit was his tendency to jump up on humans and other dogs. We were unable to break him of this habit. We were impressed by the claims of Mr. O and decided to try the all-day training Mr. O offered. We scheduled a training date in February which was snowed-out and a follow-up date in March which was also cancelled because of weather. Notably, there was no problem in rescheduling a make-up date in June. Luca got along well with Mr. O. At the end of the training, he was completely healed of his jumping up problem. Luca has also improved markedly in his ability to walk on loose leash, and follow his “wait” and “stay” commands. Mr. O offers a no- nonsense training approach which produces results. More...

We also happened to pay Mr O around the time that he was hospitalized and did have to wait 6 months past our original training date. It was frustrating not to hear from him, or call disconnected numbers, but in the end, Mr O did get in touch with us and train our Neapolitan Mastiff. It was completely worth the wait. It's actually unbelievable, the transformation is night and day. Opi was dominant, manipulative and we were unable to take her to doggy daycare because of her possessive behavior towards other dogs. She also dragged us on the leash, begged for food and peed in the house.When we picked her up, she was walking perfectly on the leash, listening to commands for sitting, she now responds to our corrections in the house and outside. Opi was also very affectionate toward Mr O the evening we picked her up. It was obvious they had a nice bond.Its not magic, we can see that if we aren't following through with what Mr. O taught us at the end of the training day, she would return to her negative behaviors, so ultimately it is up to us to maintain the rehabilitation that Mr. O did. We had put Opi through several different private and group training programs and were endlessly frustrated because we did not have the skill or understanding to get her to a place where she was trained enough to listen. These trainings were also all positive, treat-based reinforcement trainings, which might work for some breeds. But for dogs who are having bigger issues or are more dominant breeds, this kind of training is pretty ineffective. Having Mr O get her to a place where she is trained and calm makes it so much easier for us to maintain the changes. We've already referred all of our friends and Opi will now be one of his celebrity dogs. More...

He has come thru and trained our dog as promised

I have been a customer of Mr. Orsino for 12 years. He has trained all three of my German Shepherd dogs, which for those who know the breed, understand they are high drive, high energy dogs that require a lot of exercise and training to keep them from becoming bored and unruly. When they are not kept active and busy, they can become very destructive. I am not a dog trainer, so when I rescued my first GSD, she was too much for me to handle, until I met Joe by chance at the Pgh Home and Garden show. I told him my problems with my dog, and we made arrangements for him to train her. When I went back to pick her up, it was like I had a brand new dog. That was in 2004. His training was the reason I decided to get a second GSD, and she was a maniac of a puppy until she spent time with Mr. O. Two years ago, our old girl had to be euthanized, and we got our third GSD five months later. She has been the most difficult of all to handle thus far. Needless to say, I called Joe and made arrangements for him to train her too. That was when he had a medical emergency, and ended up in the hospital. Naturally, I was concerned about my investment, but I know this man’s business practices, and I have known him to be hard working, reliable and good with all my dogs. So I waited to hear from him. When he was well enough to call, he promised to make good on our contracted arrangement, which true to his word, he did as soon as he was physically able. When I picked her up this evening, I almost thought he traded her out for a different dog. She was calm and obedient, two things I could not teach her myself. And though he looked a little tired at the end of the day, I can say with certainty that Joe has not lost his touch. I’m so glad he recovered and is back to doing what he does best. I would not hesitate to have him train another dog of mine if I were to get another one. More...

Mr O did a wonderful job with my dogs over the years. My one dog was a special dog with him, she went to shows, exhibits and even broke the world record for walking dogs on leash. Gia absolutely lived Mr O. Everytime she heard the name she was so excited to go with him.Yes he is alittle pricey but well worth it. One day training can be done. More...

He did a great job with Paisley - we bought the one day program. Now she’s one of his Celebrity Dogs which is something I never thought I’d see as her issues stemmed from not being socialized

My Ivy was trained by Mr. O 4 years ago after we adopted her at 11 months old. She had no training at all. We chose to do one day training and have never regretted it. She has been going to his shows as a celebrity dog ever since the begining. His love for her is honest and he's truly one of few people I trust my dog to be with when I am not around. Her behavior is that of a happy dog. She needs minimum correction and has become her own self. More...

Q&A

The inspiration of knowing there is hope for ALL dogs thanks to the miraculous Grace of Our Lord and Savior who has granted Mr. O with the ability and watches over him as he performs his ability to understand, communicate and fix these otherwise unfixable dogs. Mr. O’s training programs have literally saved hundreds of dogs’ lives by performing what hundreds of dog owners call a "miracle". This miracle has allowed them to keep their beloved best friends and to control the behavior that could have been the reason of their demise.

"Mr. O", Joseph Orsino Jr. is a dog trainer and behaviorist with over 30 years of experience.
Actually, at the early age of 3 years old, his parents gave him a 6-month-old German Shepherd mix dog named Blackie. Blackie very quickly became Joe’s shadow, sidekick, and partner in crime. When little Joey was about 5 years old his parents as well as everyone else that knew or observed him and Blackie, were amazed by all the tricks that Joey not only taught his dog Blackie but even his friends dogs.
At that time Freda and Joseph Orsino Sr. knew that their son had a God given gift of communicating with dogs. They encouraged his ability and love for dogs by allowing him to have and do his thing with numerous dogs throughout his childhood.

At Mr. O’s The Dog Training Place, we strive to give you a stress free and problem free environment for you and your dog. Mr. O’s Training Program is second to none, we expect and we achieve the highest level of respectability that your dog is capable of due to Mr. O's God given gift of communicating with dogs with just the right amount of patience, understanding, and devoted Love.
The words, thoughts and training philosophy presented on this page are from Mr. O's own mind and heart. They are from his personal, educational, spiritual, and training experiences, that he was able to achieve through the Miraculous Grace of God to live by and dedicate his life to being an advocate for all dogs and to change the Dog World one dog at a time. All information contained on Mr. O's website is Mr. O's own philosophy and is protected by the copyright laws.
There are two reasons why our training program is above all the rest. First and always, the most important thing is that our training is achieved by the miraculous grace of God. And second is the process we use to make this happen.
